Rough, course, acid and dirty, between Jesus Lizard and Steve Albini the former, mad and hallucinated the latter, – they share out together in affinity this cd with 3 and 2 songs per head. The oxbow with a ultra-fuzzing guitar and its buzzzzing on Pretty Bird, or the sweet riff strings with a nightmare-like distorted background on Pannonica. Our local White Tornado, stabbing on Hog Butcher, they rattle off other 2 tracks with harsh guitar and rasping voice lost into echo smelling rancid. Great sound enigneering, nice package in green digipack.
